We urge all those with an interest in learning, especially parents, teachers, governors and business people, to examine the proposals in this White Paper and to join us in taking the steps necessary to create a world-class education system. 7 The appendix on achievement in schools (page 78) shows that too many of our children are failing to realise their potential: in the 1996 national tests only 6 in 10 of 11 year-olds reached the standard in maths and English expected for their age: achievement at 14 shows a similar picture, with well over a third of 14 year-olds not achieving the level expected for their age in English, maths or science: over half of our 16 year-olds do not achieve five or more higher grade GCSEs, two-thirds of them do not achieve a grade C in maths and English, and 1 in 12 achieves no GCSEs at all: and international comparisons support the view that our pupils are not achieving their potential.

Small schools work better than large ones. Thank you Raegan and team for your servants' hearts!

For example, a mother felt extremely intimidated by other adults at her first Home and School Association meeting: And when I walked in and I saw everybody with briefcases and folders, I went, �Ooh, I�m in the wrong place.� It took a lot of courage for me to go there, because you even start thinking to yourself, �Well I did so poorly in school; am I even going to hold up a conversation with these people?
